Meeting at a Silos gig in New Orleans, and bound by mutual admiration for the other's craft and life's work, acclaimed novelist Jonathan Lethem and genre-bending bandleader Walter Salas-Humara of the Silos set out to pen some songs together. Within two inspired days, they had crafted an entire album's worth of material. They then doubled their collective, by enlisting the musicianship and production prowess of the Elegant Too, who took the rudiments of each song and enveloped them within a completely new musical and sonic context. The results are staggering. This is an unprecedented artistic collaboration between a renowned author, a great American songwriter, and acclaimed, ground breaking musicians.

Jonathan Lethem is the best-selling author of seven novels, including You Don't Love Me Yet, Motherless Brooklyn, and Fortress of Solitude. Walter Salas-Humara is the stalwart leader of the Silos, the critically-acclaimed progenitors of the roots rock and Americana movements. The Elegant Too are the music production team of Chris Maxwell and Phil Hernandez, who have handled remixes for P-Diddy and the Lox, and have produced such noteworthy artists as Yoko Ono, Ray Davies, John Cale, They Might Be Giants, and Blues Explosion.
